Members' Business — S6M-01994 Gillian Martin: Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage as Part of Scotland's Net Zero Ambitions

Thursday 25 November 2021 12:48 PM


That the Parliament recognises what it sees as the Scottish Government’s ambitious target to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045, its interim target of 75% reduction by 2030 and its strong support for the Scottish cluster of proposed carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) projects; understands that the UK Government’s evaluation process scored the Acorn Project in Aberdeenshire as the most deliverable project in the UK; notes the calls on the UK Government urging it to change its decision regarding investing in CCUS in Scotland and award the Scottish cluster Track-1 status as part of a wider strategy to achieve as much carbon storage as possible; recognises what it believes would be the impact on the north east in particular of the UK Government failing to support the Scottish cluster; believes that this is a pivotal moment for CCUS on the decarbonisation pathway; notes the advice from the Climate Change Committee on the importance of CCUS toward reaching Scotland’s net zero commitments, and believes that this is a view shared by many industrial partnerships.
